Our Lady of Rice and Beans
This morning I received this beautiful hand made pin from my 'baby' sister, Marina. Yesterday was my birthday and I'll write more about the cassoulet experience tomorrow. But this pin seemed to be the answer to yesterday's meal: You can eat French food till you explode (or stroke out) but there's no place like home. The ultimate comfort food for us is Rice and Beans.
Just look at that face of contentment. Can't you just hear her saying, "YUM". Or, as my late mother, the greatest maker of rice and beans, used to say, 'Num, num!"
